This year the 2nd Annual Festival of Toulon, France, welcomed the participation of the Festival Bella Via Team from the Monterrey area of Mexico.
The Mexican artists street painted in the exhibition area of the festival, creating five large chalk reproductions of work by the famed Mexican painter Jesus Helguera.
